ACP Forest Management Project to help Jamaicans build resilience

With the aim of allowing communities to co-manage forested areas while building their resilience to the risks that come with natural hazards, around 215 hectares (531 acres) of watershed areas have been replanted utilising 113,914 seedlings. This initiative has been carried out under the Local Forest Management Committee (LFMC) project, implemented through funding from the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) in the ACP Group.
During the course of the  Smithfield LFMC in Cascade (Hanover) Hon. Luther Buchanan, Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister, stressed this projects help residents become stakeholders in the preservation of the protected forests of the island. “This is exactly the type of community involvement project that is needed to foster awareness about the environmental importance of our forests,” he stated.
The project is managed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ), and is being implemented by the Forestry Department, National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), Environmental Management Division of the Ministry of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, and the Meteorological Service.
